difference in that part of the story. >> host: ford "barack obama: the story," how many interviews did you do? >> guest: i would say almost 400. and i had a wonderful assistant, gabrielle banks who worked with some of the parts of the story, but i traveled all around the world. so i interviewed everybody i could find in every part of president obama, of his parents and his grandparents. >> host: barack obama senior was born in 1836. that was his childhood but? >> guest: from a fairly early age, was dealing with western culture and the british. he was a very smart kid. his father was difficult to get along with do not often that. mostly in nairobi and barack was growing a. he was lucky in the sense -- two senses. what was he was smart enough to get into the only really good school in that area. and although she matter totally finished fair, he was a very smart dude and. he had that sort of clash of old and if not most everyone in this generation had to deal with. for all his youth and adolescence, he was living in a colo
with president obama. coming up, reaction to the interview and what it tells us about what his second term will look like. joining me, nbc's tom brokaw. presidential historian doris goodwin, john meachum, david brooks of the "new york times" and chuck todd. all coming up next. >> i think most of the blame still has to go to the republicans. they've had a brain freeze since the election. they have no strategy. they don't know what they want, and they haven't decided what they want. but if i had to fault president obama, i would say sometimes he has governed like a visitor from a morally superior civilization. he comes in here, and he will not -- he'll talk with boehner. he won't talk with the other republicans. he hasn't built their trust. boehner actually made a pretty serious concession, $800 billion in tax revenues. probably willing to go up on rates. but the trust wasn't there to get that done. if the president wants to get stuff done over the next four years, it's got to be a lot more than making the intellectual concessions. it's got to get to the place where republicans say, ok, we'l
think that policy based on fact is better policy based on revenge. one comment on the interview president obama did with david gregory he taped it yesterday afternoon at the very same honor that mcconnell was actually trying to get a deal done. so to me, the president actually wants an argument more than a deal. he could have been helpful and instrumental in getting things done every six months to go through a budget crisis with president obama, he could figure out a way to lead and bring people together earlier. they can't call in mitch mcdonnell until the 26th and complain he was there at the last minute. i think there's a lot to be done to improve legislative affairs at the white house and would ultimately help president obama. >> and said about that, but mcconnell is still is late, he could have imposed himself, and not the way he does it. here is the fundamental problem. leaving aside the policy issue which i know is important to you all. if i get down to politics on bumper stickers, you're holding all of this up, including people's tax cuts it defend millionaires, that's a
there is nothing to vote on. so we are tumbling over the fiscal cliff for now. the question after the interview, president obama sitting down with one sunday talk show host yesterday and that host is capping flak if not asking the tough questions on taxes and spending and follow-up >> politics is always messy. people have asked me about the film "lincoln" and --. >> is this your lincoln moment? >> no, i never compare myself to lincoln. and, obviously the magnitude of the issues are quite different from the civil war and slavery. >> how accountable are you for the fact that washington is not getting anything done? >> if you look at my track record over the last two years, i cut spending by over $1 trillion in 2011. >> and now, what do you think of how the media is treating the president as we muddle through this fiscal mess? >> it is a consequential time, the president has to answer tough questions about the toughest questions of our time and he sits down with "meet the press" and the president and the white house believes this is his opportunity to speak to america, to speak broadly. what he di
to use the money? >> senator, we heard president obama say in an interview that if congress can't get anything done and we go over the fiscal cliff, that plan "d" essentially is to have another vote on january 4th when the new congress comes in, and that would just be a straight up or down vote on extending tax cuts for middle class families making up to $250,000 a year. do you think that's what happens? >> i'm hoping that we resolve this today to give the american people some certainty. the president doesn't seem too eager to actually get involved and find solutions to deal with the number one problem facing our country. if you do what the president just proposed and raise taxes on those folks, it helps fund the government for seven days. it doesn't deal with our fundamental spending problem in this country. bottom line is the president is the only one with a pen who can sign into law something and he ought to be very involved with making sure that he gets something that he will sign that will pass both a republican controlled house and a democrat controlled
, there was movement on the income level they're willing to protect from tax hikes and other levels. mr. obama, on an interview on "meet the press" was cautiously opt missic. >> i'm confident that one of two things will happen when it comes to the fiscal cliff. one, we'll see an agreement within the next 48 hours in which case middle class taxes will not go up. if that doesn't happen, then democrats in the senate will put a bill on the floor of the senate and republican also have to decide if they're going to block it. >> biden and mcconnell are said to be only about $100,000 apart on where the bush era tax cuts would expire with the republican pushing for $550,000 a year. democrats offering a 450,000. biden stowed have given up his push to raise the estate tax. democrats are trying to delay spending cuts until 2015 and republicans are demanding more spending cuts to offset extended unemployment benefits and farm subsidies. lot of ground to make up. but mcconnell says his decision to reach out to biden was a good one. >> the vice president and i worked together on solutions before and i believ
on september 11th. it sites mr. obama a's interview with 60 minutes on september 12th as evidence of inconsistent statements. he states it's too early to know exactly how this came about, what group was involved. obviously it was an attack on americans and we will be working with the libyan government to make sure we bring these folks to justice one way or the other. the president said in an interview over the weekend that there were quote, huge problems and sloppiness connected to benghazi and this his administration is accepting the 29 recommendations of the state department review, jon. jon: what are we learning about the warnings that were given here? >> reporter: this is probably the critical piece. the report found more than a dozen security-related incidents leading up to the attack with a senior state department official telling senate investigators that in the summer of 2012 the threat was so significant the system was blinking red. >> you have dozens of of intelligence reports and acts of violence in benghazi which make it very clear that this is becoming one of the most

cliff. mitch mcconnell is pushing back against remarks made by president obama during a televised interview in which the president blamed the entire crisis squarely on congress and the g.o.p. mcconnell's office responded with while the president was taping those discordant remarks senator mcconnell was in the office work to go bring republicans and democrats to get on the solution. discussions continue today. >>> joining me, doug shawn, former pollster for president bill clinton. nancy, media speaks strategy and national spokesperson to senator john mccain. >>> the president goes on "meet the press" and claims it's the fault of the awful republicans and that angers mcconnell, who lashes back out. so that was clearly a calculated risk by the president, angrying your opponent versus pressuring him publicly to cave. which way does it go? >> we don't know. we're all pretty pessimistic given the breakdown the talks today but i think the president's strategy is to keep constant pressure on the republicans, recognizing this battle is not going to be over whether or not there's a deal. it

down an embankment. the bus was heading to canada from vegas. >> president obama says security and management flaws identified in a report on the deadly attack in benghazi, libya reflect "sloppiness" in how the state department safeguards missions abroad. during an interview on nbc's "meet the press" he talked about the finding that the state department relied too heavily on untested local libyan militias to safeguard the compound. there was sloppiness on how we secure embassies >>u-s ambassador christopher stevens and three other americans were killed in the september 11th attack on the u- s consulate in benghazi. lawmakers on capitol hill have finally agreed on something e and it is good news for consumers. it means the price of milk will not double next month . top leaders in both parties have agreed to a one-year extension of the 2008 farm bill that expired in october. that will preserve a bundle of subsidies for farmers which lowers the price of dairy. agriculture secretary had warned americans could start paying $7 per gallon of milk if the current program expires >> th
there will be a vote. some say they think we're going over the cliff. listening to president obama in a rare sunday show interview yesterday, he's obviously making it known, if we do go over the cliff, he is prepared to point the finger at republicans. here's what he said. >> all right. so we're struggling to bring you that sound, but basically he was saying that republicans are trying to protect the wealthy when it comes to taxes. and to that point, ali, we do have new information about where the proposal stands at this point according to democratic sources. they have actually gone up to saying $450,000, the first $450,000 of income, that would be protected from a tax increase. so that's higher, obviously, than what the president's starting point was, which was $250,000, and even higher than where he ended in his sort of discussions with speaker boehner about a larger deal. he was at 400 there. obviously, republicans want higher than that. we'll see where that number comes out. >> it's valid to say something's happening. in other words, that at least gives you some sense of negotiation, which is a
